What To Ask When Renting From A Photo Booth Rental Company

May 17, 2016 | 0 comments

It is important to ask as many questions as you can when you are considering working with a photo booth rental company. We understand that there are other companies out there other than Clear Choice Photo Booth (wait, what?) and you need to do your research! But before you jump in with just any photo booth rental company, be sure to ask these five important questions!

What kind of quality will my photos be?
We recently learned that there are photo booth rental companies that are using web cams to take your photos. Yes, web cams. We had no idea. We have been using Canon dSLRs since we opened back in 2012 and we continually upgrade them to ensure the best quality photos are taken at every event. So before you decide to go with a “cheaper” company, make sure they aren’t slacking in the quality department!

Will the backdrop be a plain black background?
This is an important question to ask because maybe you want to add some color to your photos, or you are worried that your guests will blend in with the background. See what options you have, because the backdrop will be in every photo! And in case you were wondering, we offer many different colors and styles at Clear Choice Photo Booth. You can even ask us about our custom backdrops or green screen, which gives you endless creativity with your backdrops!

Do you offer props? Can I bring my own?
If a photo booth company says that they don’t offer props, that might be a red flag. Some rental companies don’t, but that is because they mostly work with corporate events and so it isn’t needed. But if your event is social, such as a wedding, graduation party, or a reunion, chances are you want to incorporate props into your package. Clear Choice Photo Booth offers props in almost all of our packages—and you can add it on to all of them. We also say, “Sure! The more the merrier!” if you ask to bring your own props. We’ll keep it organized on the table for you and separate it at the end of the event so that you can take yours home with you.

Do you have any references?
This is really important! You want to make sure that, if you’re spending top-notch money, you are renting from an experienced, quality photo booth rental company. You also want to make sure that the majority of reviewers sing high praises to the company and were satisfied with their services. Of course, every company is going to have those few negative reviews, but if those overtake the positive, than there’s trouble. We at Clear Choice Photo Booth get a lot of business from word of mouth and we take pride in many of the reviews we have received. You are welcome to check them out over at The Knot, Wedding Wire and Facebook!

Now that you know what questions to ask, go ahead and contact your local office or send us an email! We would love to hear from you and answer any questions you may have!
